How to Edit Your Request Forms

Requests are a central part of any team’s WorkFlow. Requests can come in from different users throughout the team, which then needs to be approved by an Administrator to become a Work Order. With UpKeep you have the ability to edit your Request Forms so that you can get the information you need to create a Work Order.

There are request forms for:

  1. Requester Users: those added to your team and can log in using an email and password.
  2. Public Requesters: those may be submitting a request via the Public Request Portal or email. (The public request portal is a feature beginning with the Professional Plan.)

You can edit the request form to get the information you need to then create a work order. Once your requesters begin submitting a work request, they will only submit the information that you need.

Looking for instructions on how to submit and manage work requests? Your requests can find instructions on how to submit a request. Admins can find an article on how to create and manage requests!
